      Description

      According to the fetch spec, there is a CORS-preflight request in order to verify if the server understand the CORS protocol.

      The web service documentation recommends providing a meaningful User-Agent string, but User-Agent is not a safelisted CORS header, so spec-adhering tools will not be able to perform CORS requests correctly. Currently, Firefox 69+ is one having issues.
